I'm a server engineer in Austin. I enjoy candlelit dinners and long walks on the beach. My favorite color is orange. Hi, I'm Erick.
Turning input into output requires a lot of thinking. But by using a framework, you gain +1 agility. A good framework will speed up development time on top of giving you security, data validation, and a big community of bearded friends.
I'm a socially anxious people person.
I was raised on a small Louisiana farm, complete with cows, tractors, and allergies. I spent my last two years of high school at a pretty intense boarding school. I studied software engineering at LSU, and now I'm building web services here.
Throughout high school I was always interested in computer science, but my first declared major was Chemistry. When I accidentally graduated from high school with honors in computer science, I decided to switch majors.
When I'm not plugged into a text editor or looking at pictures of cats on imgur, you can probably find me at a bar in downtown Austin or listening to Planet Money.
I can build a web application from end to end, but my graphic design skills won't win any awards. I have a background in php using the symfony framework. But python puts the bacon on the table.
- HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, Bootstrap
- Python, PHP, Java
- django, symfony, mysql
- ssh, sftp, zsh, git
- OS X, CentOS, Debian
I think the tools you use say a lot about you as a developer. There are too many tools out there to not take advantage of. I develop on OS X. Instead of Terminal, I use iTerm2 and Oh My ZShell. IDEs are too clunky. I prefer the lightweight text editor Chocolat. If you're not using version control, shame on you.
